    by poetictouch

    Robert Donat reads the first stanza of William Wordsworth's Ode: Intimations Of Immortality

    There Was A Time
    Ode: Intimations Of Immortality From Recollections Of Early Childhood
    First Stanza
    by William Wordsworth (1770--1850)

    There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
    The earth, and every common sight,
    To me did seem
    Apparelled in celestial light,
    The glory and the freshness of a dream.
    It is not now as it hath been of yore; —
    Turn wheresoe'er I may,
    By night or day,
    The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
